We will also hear from international experts (l-r) Professor Padmaja SankaridurgProfessor Mark Bullimore and Dr Kate Gifford every Tuesday throughout November. Members can watch the series live online via Zoom (login details will be issued to paid up members via our TLC Monthly November e-notice), or through our Facebook page. The full agenda can be found below.

IACLE President Dr Shehzad Naroo commented ‘Following the success of our first Virtual Conference last month, the upcoming webinar series aims to help understand the mechanisms of myopia, the effects it can have on the eye, its progression and the methods to control it. Ophthalmic practitioners and researchers from around the world would agree that understanding myopia is one of the challenges we face in our field today. Those involved in training the next generation of contact lens practitioners play a vital role in ensuring their students have the confidence and ability to manage myopia.’

Member feedback from our Virtual Conference

“I really enjoyed the conference overall. There were many practical tips that I can implement within my teaching practice.”

“I enjoyed the event and having these events twice a year would be good to connect members even closer.”

“It was certainly a great experience for me listening to the great representatives of the Association. Technology can bring us closer and allow us to share personal experiences.”

These were some of the comments received in the post-conference survey from IACLE members who attended our first-ever Virtual Conference. Due to the success of the conference, we plan to organize another virtual meeting in the first quarter of 2021.
